In Memory

Mary Beth Labanoski (Marolo)



An angel has returned to heaven. On Wednesday morning Mary Beth Marolo passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones after a decline in health.

Mary Beth fought bravely and courageously against chronic illness for many years; however, her soul grew tired and is now at rest.

Mary Beth loved travel and music concerts. She fulfilled her dream of seeing Paris and met and made many dear friends among the bands of the shows she attended. She loved collecting memorabilia of some of her favorite childhood memories of things like Barbie dolls and The Beatles. Above all else she loved her family and friends.

Preceding her in death were her biological parents, Ronald and Nancy Letcher Labanoski; and brother, Aaron Labanoski.

Surviving are her daughter, Tracy Marolo Buchinsky and husband, John; grandchildren, Justin, Katie and Christopher, all of Danville, Va.; her son, Sammy Marolo and wife, Alexandria; grandchildren, Mason, Mariah and Max, Pardeesville; fiancé, soulmate and constant companion, Jerry Tray; stepmother, Rosemary Potzner Labanoski, Gilbert, Ariz. She leaves behind several cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews as well as several friends who were as close to family as anyone could be.

She was truly loved by many and will be deeply missed.

Entombment will take place in Calvary Cemetery, Drums.
